Betamethasone was administered on alternate days to rats, and the role of the central cholinergic system in the development of hypertension assessed. After 15 days of treatment the systolic blood pressure of treated rats was significantly higher than that of control rats. Peripheral administration of atropine but not of methyl atropine reduced systolic(More)
TRH increases the pressor response to acetylcholine through an increment in muscarinic receptors. As chronic atropinization produces a similar effect, we hypothesized that both phenomena may be related. The effect of chronic atropine treatment on the TRH content of several brain areas in Wistar rats was studied. Atropine produced significant increases in(More)
The effect of chronic atropine treatment was studied on thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) content of several brain areas in Wistar rats. Atropine produced TRH increases in the septal area, preoptic area and the hypophysis; this was observed when rats were killed immediately after the last dose, while a decrease was observed only in the hypophysis 48 h(More)
A two week administration of the glucocorticoid betametasone to male Wistar rats produced a mild hypertensive state. The brain of these rats showed some significant changes in amine and metabolite content with respect to normotensive controls. Epinephrine and metanephrine were increased in the rostral ventrolateral medulla and in the preoptic area.(More)
